Woodcarving PDF Print E-mail

The patterns for this set of carvings appear in Buie’s book, “The Big Book of Woodcarving Patterns.” This 246 page volume, in three ring binder form, was copyrighted and privately published in 1997. It received national attention when it appeared in the “Chip Chats” magazine of the National Woodcarvers Association. Recently this book was placed on a CD by Buie and is available at a very reasonable price. Buie’s patterns are first created in clay. Pen and ink sketches are made from the clay model. The sketches become the woodcarving patterns.

NATIVITY SET

After many years this 15 piece set is still in demand due to Buie’s unique style and quality of workmanship. His choice of doing a Nativity set was inspired by a desire to create a theme that would have a lasting value and appeal to people from all walks of life.

NOAH’S ARK SET

The Noah’s Ark Set was introduced in 1998. It contains thirty-nine carvings plus the Ark and has been widely accepted and continues to gain popularity. The Ark is also a chest for storing all the pieces. All of Buie’s carvings are hand-painted, using a mixture of tube watercolors and water based varnish.

Purchase

As with all original handcrafted art forms, availability is limited by the physical ability of the artist to produce them in large quantities. Buie’s creations are available within a relatively short time frame on a “request only” basis. You can contact hiim by telephone at (601) 924-4690 or cell phone at (601) 906-5426. You may also contact him by e-mail . Note: Each carving is hand sculptured and painted. The pieces are too fragile to be used as children’s toys.
